About the Event

Governments across the globe and international automakers alike continue their bullish outlook on the future of electrified transportation. Consequently, the technological development needed to support vehicle electrification must keep pace with rising expectations – batteries with enhanced performance, durability, cost, and abuse tolerance are indeed crucial to the viability of each of the hybrid/electric vehicle powertrains. AABC was founded to review the status of automotive battery technology and provide informed glimpses into the future. The in-person and virtual program will uncover the underlying technical and business issues that will impact the pace and path of vehicle electrification worldwide.
